Daniel de Oliveira,
Oh, well! First time I saw this I was in high school. I've read the book a thousand times before, and I was kinda afraid of the potential movie disaster, but this and lots of other movies proves that only Brazilian can make a movie based on a novel that would satisfy any of the previous readers! As said before, having no climax is just point of the story, so that's a completely invalid statement. Reginaldo Farias couldn't have done a most accurate picture of Brás, and the sarcasm is everywhere. There may be moments in the book that no images can explain, but still, that's as perfect as it could ever get! Just a great movie.
